Fredericia Trinidad Chair


Fredericia Trinidad Chair


Designed by Nanna Ditzel

When designing the Trinidad Chair in 1993, Nanna Ditzel found inspiration in the elaborate fretwork from the Gingerbread Facades that she had seen in colonial architecture while travelling through Trinidad.

Much like the facades, the cut-out fretwork of the chair triggers an interplay of light and shadows, creating a pattern projected into space and a subtle sense of motion.

Nanna Ditzel (1923-2005), with her postmodernism attitude and rebellion against tradition, became a leading figure in the renewal of Danish design in the 1990's, well after her 70th birthday.

Very often, her works had a subjective starting point, which was contrary to specific problems to be solved. However, she had a magnificent ability to transform her artistic dreams into very functional and purposeful designs.

Meeting Nanna Ditzel in person led to an irresistible urge to put her furniture in your home. In part due to her unparalleled innovative talent, but also in hopes that her personality would have had a contagious effect on your rooms.

At an age when most other people have long since retired, the grand old lady of modern design continued to attract worldwide attention and she welcomed the inspiration that came from new materials and production methods.

Three steps forward and two steps back still means I've taken a step in the right direction.


Nanna Ditzel was born in Copenhagen, Denmark, in 1923. She trained as a cabinetmaker before studying at the School of Arts and Crafts and the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen. She was always inspired by the challenges of new materials and techniques.

Nanna was a pioneer in the fields of fiberglass, wickerwork, foam rubber, and various disciplines such as cabinet making, jewellery, tableware, and textiles. Some of her most known designs within this field are the "Hallingdal" textile for Kvadrat and her jewellery for Georg Jensen.

From 1968 to 1986, Nanna lived in London, where she established the international furniture house, Interspace in Hampstead. In 1989 she became closely connected with Fredericia, beginning with "Bench For Two".

The collaboration between Fredericia and Ditzel developed into a mutual partnership, and the successful launch of the Trinidad chair in 1993 marked a turning point in Fredericia's history, establishing Nanna Ditzel as Fredericia's second house designer after Børge Mogensen. Nanna passed away in 2005, but her uncompromising approach strongly influences Fredericia’s culture and product development.

If you take good care of your lacquered furniture, no maintenance is necessary. Avoid leaving liquids on the surfaces and always ensure that they are kept dry. Small cracks in the lacquer can be mended by using the original Fredericia lacquer. Discolouration cannot be rectified by using cleaning agents, but must be restored by a professional.


Wipe with a clean, dry cloth, and remember to always wipe in the wood grains’ longitudinal direction. If you need to wash down the entire piece of furniture, use a soft cloth, tightly wrung in lukewarm water containing a tiny bit of all-purpose cleaning agent. Always choose a mild cleaning agent without sanding qualities. Be careful not to use too much water, and preferably, use only a damp cloth. Remember to always finish off by wiping the surfaces with a dry cloth.


Lacquer is slightly more sensitive than varnish. However, a lacquer sustains a more beautiful patina and you will not be able to see small scratches with the naked eye. Lacquered surfaces are easy to clean and they are highly resistant to dust and dirt. However, a lacquered surface is difficult to restore once ruined. Therefore, you must immediately wipe off any spilt liquids, as they will otherwise be absorbed into the tiny cracks in the varnish and create blotches. Lacquered surfaces are also sensitive to humidity, moisture and alcohol. When lacquering natural oak, we use a matte lacquer with a light white pigmentation, which helps maintain the colour of the wood. Fresh lacquer is used to repair tiny cracks in coloured, lacquered surfaces. You can obtain the original coloured lacquer from Fredericia. Please refer to the ‘item no’ found underneath the chair when referencing the original colour.


ou must never use abrasive detergents, wire wool or polish, but only the gentlest and mildest cleaning agents available. -Lacquered wooden surfaces can endure neither humidity nor alcohol. Always wipe off any spilt liquids immediately. -In terms of lacquered counter tops, you should never leave vases or similar items in the same place for longer periods of time, as this may result in stains and discolouration. -On some products Fredericia uses waterbased lacquer. Gradually this will be implemented on all products. Waterbased lacquers cannot withstand deinfection using ethanol as it causes permanent damage to the surface. -Never disinfect lacquered wooden surfaces using ethanol as alcohol based disinfective cleaning agents will damage the surface. Only use water containing a mild all-purpose cleaning agent, which has proven just as effective.


hromium frames are resistant to both dirt and liquids and require no maintenance in particular. We do, however, recommend wiping chromium frames with a dry cloth. -Make sure to always wipe the frame after washing the floor to avoid stains. -Stain Removal Dust, dirt and grease: Wipe clean with a soft cloth firmly wrung in hot water containing a mild cleaning agent. Marks from shoe polish/rubber: Wipe clean with a soft cloth firmly wrung in hot water containing a mild cleaning agent. On tougher stains, you may use methylated spirits or cleaner’s naphtha. -Note Please note that you should never use chlorine-based liquids on steel, as this will cause corrosion, and never use wire wool as this may cause discolouration. -Powder coated metal is durable and does not require any particular type of maintenance. Simply wipe with a soft cloth wrung in hot water, possibly containing a mild cleaning agent if necessary. Wipe the surface with a dry cloth, immediately after.


ak oil and Walnut oil : Clear, natural oil. With oak, the wood takes on a natural, darker tone.
-Oak light oil : Clear, light, natural oil. The oil is specially developed with a very light pigment treatment that preserves the light colour of the oak.
-Smoked oak oil : Oak is smoked according to traditional methods and proper protocols in an ammonia vapor. After a final polish by hand, a clear, natural oil is applied to the smoked oak. Difference in surface colour will naturally occur and will vary considerably.


Wipe with a clean, dry cloth. We do not recommend using wet cloths on oiled surfaces if this can be avoided. For stains that cannot be removed with a dry cloth, use a soft cloth dampened with clean water and wrung out. Immediately after wiping with the damp cloth, use a dry cloth to wipe the surface dry.


iled wood surfaces must be maintained regularly with the application of a thin layer of oil. For our oak oil, walnut oil and smoked oak oil, Fredericia recommends using Leather Masters Wood Wax Oil. -For oak light oil, we recommend using Leather Masters Natural Oil. However, this must not be used if the wooden furniture is to be completely re-oiled after it has been sanded down. It should only be used for maintenance of dry surfaces for the variant Oak light oil. Apply oil only when it is visibly necessary, when the surface looks dry or faded. Oil applied one to two times a year is usually sufficient to preserve the colour of the wood.

-Before applying oil, wash the entire piece of wooden furniture with a soft cloth soaked in lukewarm water. For dirt that is more difficult to remove, add soap shavings to the water. Allow the surface to dry completely for at least one hour before treating with oil. If the wood fibres rise, the surface can be sanded lightly using sandpaper grain 240. Drag the sandpaper gently over the surface once in the longitudinal direction of the wood grain. Then wipe the wood with a dry soft cloth to remove any excess dust.

-Next apply oil onto a dry cloth and and apply the oil on the wooden furniture by wiping the cloth in the longitudinal direction of the wood grain. Never pour oil directly onto the wooden surface itself. Be aware that a uniform, even layer of oil must be applied to the entire piece of wooden furniture, as well as the underside and edges in wood to avoid any distortions of the wood. Let the oil work for approx. 15 minutes. -Finally, remove any excess oil by wiping with a dry, lint-free cloth in the longitudinal direction of the wood grain. Let the furniture dry for at least 12 hours before using it. Repeat the treatment as needed.
